Hospice Mid-Northland provides specialist palliative care for patients living in the mid-north from Taupo Bay in the north to Towai in the south and from coast-to-coast, including South Hokianga. This represents a population of approximately 45,000. Our nursing and family support team travel at least 7,500km each month caring for around seventy-five people at any one time.
We are one of 38 Hospices affiliated with Hospice New Zealand.
We work closely with people and businesses within our community to raise the funds necessary to continue our valued services. Hospice Mid-Northland needs at least $1.6M of funding each year. We receive 42% of our funding from the District Health Board (DHB) to provide specialist palliative care services and need to raise an additional $900,000 each year to continue to provide our wider service offer to the Mid-Northland community.
